RELEASED: OCT. 7, 2016
I am excited to share this debut novel with you. Not only is this an exciting and romantic story with a paranormal twist, but I know the author, Amanda Uhl! We’ve talked about our writing journeys- here’s what Amanda shared with me.
Mind Waves was inspired by time spent at Edgewater Park in Cleveland,
gathering beach glass on the Lake Erie shore. After spending long,
solitary hours by myself, I wondered, “What if someone watched me
while I gathered glass? And they were reading my mind.” And then I
thought, “What if they fell in love with me? What would happen next?”
You’ll need to read the book to find out!
ABOUT THE BOOK
If he can control her mind…
Government operative David Jenkins is skilled at controlling his emotions. Feelings are lethal when your job is to infiltrate minds, erase and implant thoughts, and guard the nation’s intellectual capital. But even he can’t fight his strange attraction to Grace Woznisky. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect her from a madman intent on possessing both their minds. Neither suspect their dangerous enemy has a larger motive, and David may be Grace’s only chance for survival.
Can he control her heart?
All freelance artist Grace wants is steady-paying work and to see her flighty sister to the altar. But after David offers her a job, she finds herself in the middle of a mental tug of war—one that has her reeling from nightmares and fighting for her life. She must decide: Are her growing feelings for her new boss authentic, or is she a victim of his mind-altering abilities?

My Review of MIND WAVES 5 stars
Readers, I am happy to introduce you to Amanda Uhl and her debut novel, Mind Waves. In this exciting fantasy and suspense romance, we are introduced to our heroine, Grace, a lost Midwestern gal from Cleveland. Saying goodbye to a corporate job and a husband in the same year had been difficult, but Grace is trying to move on. She lives alone with a witty parrot, and in addition to her own life, she must deal with a clingy, wilder sister who is about to be married, and a typical Mom who wants her daughters to be happy.
Grace decides to parlay her love of beach glass into an artistic business. As we all know, when you finally decide on a course of action, life can erupt. Soon, Grace is confronted by two handsome men and a government secret. The government has a Mind Control Unit, with “mind hackers” who can explore a person’s thoughts and rearrange or even erase them.
Being around two mind hackers leads to some amusing moments for Grace, “No fair, this is my daydream. Stay out.” “She would show mister mind control that he wasn’t the boss of her.”
But mind hacking can be deadly, especially when evil must be confronted.
“It’s Grace. A good portion of her mind has been wiped by our hacker.”
Can good prevail? Can the memories that link her to her lover be recovered?
Author Uhl gives us a well-written story with an exciting, smoothly paced plot and twists. The second half of the book is especially gripping and it was hard to put the book down. The usual mix of romance characters are enjoyable and paired with the art of mind hacking, Ms. Uhl has created an enthralling read. This is the first book in the Mind Hacker series and I know we will all look forward to the next book from this talented author.
